An ongoing investigation to find missing files from the Washington County commissioners' office has authorities busy looking through paper and digital documents.

Boxes of papers, disks and thumb drives were all recovered from the homes of former commissioners John Grimes and Larry Steinel.

Sheriff's deputies started the search after the hard-drives of several county-owned computers turned up erased.

Authorities said it will take a few more weeks of going through the records before they will know whether or not there's enough evidence to press charges against the former commissioners.

    Sorry, Sue, but these men are innocent until proven guilty... just as anyone else is. There are no charges until after an investigation reveals any evidence that might support charges. To call for them or anyone else to be charged FIRST, is to give them an out if the evidence is not presented... it's called DOUBLE JEPARODY!
